The viewers, much like Ted Mosby's (Josh Radnor) future kids, are still sitting patiently on the couch waiting to find out how Ted met his kids' mother. Along the way, we've met aunts Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Robin (Cobie Smulders) and uncles Marshall (Jason Segel) and Barney (Neil Patrick Harris). The hysterics in everyday activities with this group ring so true that the mother's identity is practically inconsequential at this point -- though we better find out who she is eventually, darn it.
